Samrat Prithviraj IMDB: Deepa Gahlot observes that Akshay Kumar performs the part with zeal as if he was eager to put on the outfit of a legendary hero.
It’s impossible to watch a film without being aware of the subtext when the commercials announce that it’s about the last Hindu ruler and the hero claims that very little is known about Prithviraj Chauhan as if the film were supposed to correct that historical injustice. Even more so in light of the times, we live in.
Samrat Prithviraj IMDB Review
Samrat Prithviraj Cast
Actor:- Akshay Kumar Actress:- Manushi Chillar
Prithviraj Chauhan is not a well-known figure.
What cannot be ignored, however, is that what is taught as history in schools is not always correct, and what children read in Amar Chitra Katha comics is not true history.
However, there is an abundance of written material about the emperor if one looks hard enough. Any region’s folklore contains an oral legacy in addition to scholarly studies. As a result, the story is mutated or perverted as it is recounted, sung, heard, and passed down, and eventually takes on the quality of myth.
Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the writer, and director of Samrat Prithviraj approach the film with the grand Bollywood historical style (appropriated by Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s cinema) and the reverence of a folk bard, basing his script on the epic Prithviraj Raso, which may or may not have been written by Chand Bardai, the emperor’s close associate, court poet, and oracle.
All of the famous plot aspects are present, including Samyukta’s love story, her elopement with him, and her father Jaichand’s treachery, which resulted in Prithviraj’s capture and blinding.
When the brother of his enemy Mohammad Ghori, Sultan of Ghazni (Manav Vij), seeks asylum with a courtesan, the King of Ajmer, Prithviraj Chauhan (Akshay Kumar), is portrayed as a brave and benevolent ruler, upholder of Dharma (used in the context of righteousness, not religion), the King grants it, saying that even a vaishya (prostitute) deserves respect.
This leads to a battle with Ghori, in which the sultan is defeated, imprisoned, and then released on the spur of the moment, much to everyone’s surprise.
Prithviraj (Manushi Chhillar) and Samyukta (Manushi Chhillar) are engaged in a long-distance relationship; she has heard tales of his heroism, and he has heard tales of her beauty, despite the fact that they have never met.
Between Prithviraj and his cousin, Jaichand (Ashutosh Rana), the king of Kannauj, who is also Samyukta’s father, a succession dispute arises for the throne of Delhi.
To offend Prithviraj, Jaichand announces open hostility and installs a statue of himself as his palace guard.
He organizes a swayamvar for his daughter as a political move, and she defiantly garlands the statue.
Prithviraj arrives on time to claim his bride.
Because of his fury and humiliation, Jaichand joins forces with Ghori to defeat Prithviraj.
Dwivedi (although with subpar VFX) delivers a period drama with rich sets, amazing dance numbers, extravagant combat scenes, and tremendous drama.
Lines regarding women’s rights, as well as an anachronistically feminist Sanyukta arguing with her father and mother, came as a complete surprise (Sakshi Tanwar).
She requests and is given the opportunity to reign alongside the emperor, who invites her to join him in the darbar.
Unfortunately, the Jauhar sequence had to be included, but Dwivedi offers an unexpected visual twist.
The speech in historical films is nearly always theatrical, but Dwivedi has written the lines with enough declamation, but it was strange to hear Urdu phrases seep into otherwise chaste Hindi.
In the banter between Chand and an elderly Kaka Kanha, he even adds a dash of comic relief (Sanjay Dutt).
Akshay Kumar embraces the role with zeal, as though he’s been waiting for the opportunity to don the armor of a historical figure.
In their parts, Sonu Sood and Ashutosh Rana are remarkable.
Manushi Chhillar, a newcomer, is blandly attractive and a little too raw to play a fiery princess.
Six composers were unable to provide a single memorable melody. Overuse is to blame if the Harihar chant persists.
The running time of 135 minutes is just right for not bloating the story or allowing boredom to set in.
However, it is viewed as entertainment or a greatly fictionalized rendition of history, much like the balladeers of old.

Samrat Prithviraj History
Prithviraj was born to Chahamana king Someshvara and queen Karpuradevi (a Kalachuri princess). Both Prithviraj and his younger brother Hariraja were born in Gujarat, where their father Someshvara was brought up at the Chaulukya court by his maternal relatives. According to Prithviraj Vijaya, Prithviraj was born on the 12th day of the Jyeshtha month. The text does not mention the year of his birth, but provides some of the astrological planetary positions at the time of his birth, calling them auspicious. Based on these positions and assuming certain other planetary positions, Dasharatha Sharma calculated the year of Prithviraj’s birth as 1166 CE (1223 VS)
